- I know you told me there is a lot of confusion out there regarding California’s bicycle riding laws and we hope you can clear that up for us today. So, first question: How does California law view the term bicycle?
- That is interesting. So does that mean bicyclists have to stop at stop signs and red lights?
- I know this next question is a source of confusion too. Do bicyclists in California have to wear helmets while riding?
- What about other issues, like riding on the sidewalks?
- I’ve heard cases of cyclists getting hit by opening car doors. Does that really happen?
- Any parting safety tips you can give our listeners?
